Sterling Silver Band Ring

BandRing2012 575 I have taken several jewellery courses and workshops at the Art School of Peterborough with Sandy MacFarlane.

In this workshop, I made my first silver band ring.  It’s pretty cool!

You start with a flat piece of silver that you saw off of a larger piece.  I stamped my name and the year on the inside.

Then you carefully bend it, and size it using a ring mandrel, then solder the joint.  Then, I stamped different size circles on the outside.

You can buff it to be shiny, or you can leave it dull.  It’s lots of fun!  I think I might take that workshop again!
